Wineology

INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER

BY LEN NAPOLITANO

Is it sulfites in wine that give me headaches?


Sulfites are the reason for mandatory label warnings on wine bottles because a small percentage of the
US population, less than one percent, suffer an allergic reaction to sulfites, such as sneezing or coughing.
About ten percent of these sufferers have a more serious reaction, such as shortness of breath.
However, people who get headaches from wine should not automatically blame the sulfites. In the
majority of cases the cause is probably something else, such as histamines in the wine. Some people take
an antihistamine in advance of drinking wine in order to prevent getting a reaction from the histamines
in the wine. Needless to say, the causes of allergic reactions of any kind are difficult to pin down without
a doctors assistance and if you suffer any ailment as a result of drinking wine, you should consult with a
doctor.
If you have a wine allergy you can try narrowing down the cause by first sampling wines made from
organically grown grapes, such as Bonterra made by Fetzer, or Sanford from Santa Barbara County,
among many others. These wines are made from grapes that are grown without the use of synthetic
chemicals, like pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. If no relief comes from drinking wine from
organically grown grapes, the next step is to try a 100% organic wine, which contains a minimal amount
of sulfites that occur naturally in production, and has no sulfites added. These wines are commonly
found in natural food grocery stores.
To be sure, every wine, organic or not, contains some sulfites because sulfites are produced naturally
in the process of winemaking. If the total sulfite content is 10 parts per million or higher, however, the
government requires a warning label. Winemakers add more sulfites because they help to preserve the
quality of the wine for long-term shelf life. Therefore, wines that contain no added sulfites should be
consumed while the wine is young.

Nose, Legs, Body!

a quick and easy guide for the wine beginner.

Winegrowing Decisions

BY JOSH STEIN

Winter Means Oaky Delight


Winery operations are year-round, but the intensity of this years
harvest, which is so dependent upon time and speed, gives way to a
much more gentle process as our winter rains finally begin, cellars get
more chilly and damp, and wines begin to finish their primary and
secondary fermentations and are racked into barrel. Alternatively,
wines fermented in tanks which are meant to finish those processes in
the barrel are transferred off the gross lees, the solid by-products of
making wine, which include dead yeast cells and various nutrients, so
as to allow the oaks influence to be in the mix earlier in the
production process before the wine is even completely made.
Regardless of which route toward oak reds and some whites take, the
reasons for barreling down involve a slowdown into cellar time.
Wine is a production process, not alchemy we cook with
grapes, essentially and so the choice of using barrels is just that, a
choice, and one with many subtle logistical options available to the
winemaker. Before going into them, heres what going into barrel does
for a wine. While almost all reds spend some time in contact with oak,
only some whites do. Oak imparts an underlying creaminess, and
time in contact with it encourages malolactic fermentation to begin
and to complete since Oenococcus oeni, the organism which acutally
does the acid shift, is resident in oak; this serves to soften the wine
since lactic acid is half as strong as malic (think milk versus apple
juice) and provides perhaps another of the reasons barrels of oak were
chosen for storage in antiquity. Lastly, tannin formation and
interchange takes place between the barrels and the wine, and time in
barrel in combination with the micro-oxygenation as the wood
breathes serve to help create a chemically stable, silkier finished wine.
With that as context, whether oak has been used as a primary
fermentation vessel or not, when ready to age in contact with wood,
the wine is transfered either from tank to barrel or from barrel to
barrel. Gravity-fed wineries do these processes through the
manipulation of space to allow the wine to literally drain downwards
without mechanical aids; most other wineries use pumps of various
designs to move wine horizontally or vertically around their

production spaces into barrels with as little disturbance or oxygen


contact as possible. Some wineries go the opposite direction,
concatenating their wines into larger lots held in large oak or
redwood vats or steel tanks, with or without oak stave inserts.
Costs, of course, always play a role. A new imported barrel is north
of $1,000, and that barrel will be used at most four times for any
discernible oakiness it would impart. Think of a storm-battered
piece of wood, only whats left in the barrel after wine has been in it
for a year or two resembles more a dark, yucky wine aquarium than
driftwood. Once exhausted, a barrel can be shaved and re-coopered
for an additional cost, but its just that, an additional cost which is
dependent on the coopers skills to be done properly or else the wines
stored in the rejuvenated barrel will take on port-like overtones.
This is why some wineries choose instead to use older, neutal barrels
or small steel tanks with various kinds of oak adjuncts like sticks,
beads or cubes inserted, or they will use larger staves with notches,
hanging on a lip around the edge of a large steel tank.
As you can see, what is mechanically a simple process separating
liquid from most of the solids from fermentation becomes a much
more complicated cultural and thus financial process. How much of
a difference this makes in consumer awareness and apprecation is, of
course, a subjective result. What is undeniable, however, is the impact
of oak on finished wine and its impact to the bottom line for the
winemaker both for costs and for sales. Consider that when next
looking at a barrel chai: its not just a room of wood and liquid its
the recorder of winegrowing decisions. Enjoy!

Pope Valley Winery


Take a left and find yourself transported back to a simpler time.
As you turn off the Silverado trail, away from the hustle and bustle of main
stream Napa Valley, you will see buildings dissipate and give way to undulating
rows of vineyards dotted with farmhouses and the occasional family ranch.
Once you get to Pope Valley Winery, you will see the 100-year-old oak tree that
welcomes you to the property and entrance to the historic cellar.
The winery is like a living time capsule and a walk down the winding road
of historic winemaking. In the early 1860s, with dreams of striking it rich, Ed
Haus emigrated from Switzerland with his three brothers to join in the
California Gold Rush. In 1897, Ed founded The Burgundy Wine & Olive
Factory, now known as Pope Valley Winery.
It took the Haus family eight years to dig the cave and construct the winery
that is still used today. The winery was constructed as a gravity-flow winery
built into the hillside and sits three stories high. The cellar itself is dug into the
shale hillside and held up by century-old, hand-hewn redwood timbers. The
timbers which were used in a neighboring mine during the Quick Silver boom
were transported by horse-drawn carriage to construct the Pope Valley Winery.
Through the years, the winery has endured a colorful past with various family
proprietors and a brief stint of bootlegging during Prohibition.
A century later, the Eakle Familylong time Pope Valley and Napa natives
purchased the winery. While the winerys roots go back before the 1800s, the
next generation of Eaklesbrother and sister team David Eakle and Diana
Eakle Hawkinstake pride in bringing their award-winning wines into the
twenty-first century while preserving the winerys authenticity and heritage.

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.


6613 Pope Valley Road, Pope Valley, CA 94567
No reservations for parties of 8 or less.
For reservations or specialty wine tasting experiences contact

Visit Pope Valley Winery


When the weather is stormy outside get comfortable in the tasting room
and sip on amazing, hard-to-find varietals, such as Chenin Blanc, Sangiovese
and the winerys own proprietary blends such as Faultline and Tre Uve
followed by its rich velvety Cabernets and finish it all off with the Zinfandel
Port thats been barrel aged for over 12 years. Let them transport you to an

era of days gone by as you learn about the wines while listening
to the rain come down on the tin roof.
In the crisp winter weather, bundle up and take a stroll
among the crimson vines, or enjoy a lunch you bring along at
one of the picnic tables surrounded by the natural beauty and
quiet countryside. Tour the historic cave and see in its unique
hand-hewn beams and tall shale walls. Dont forget to take a
peak in the century-old blacksmith shop, practically
untouched and complete with tools of the trade. Continue to
walk around the grounds taking in the craftsmanship of long
ago with the original late 1800s buildings all built straddling
the quiet Haus creek. The original farmhouse graces the north
east side of the property complete with stone root cellar that
was used to house goods during prohibition.
Though Pope Valley Winery is off the beaten path, this is
the stop you wont want to miss and well worth the extra drive.
In a tasting room where youre treated more like a friend than
a customer youll enjoy an experience you wont soon forget
and taste wines youll dream about coming back to.

Beringer Vineyards
Beringers Long, Rich History is Featured in Tours, Tastings and Events
Beringer might be one of the oldest and iconic working wineries in
Napa Valley, but its dedication to keeping up with the times, and even
ahead of the curve, is what continues to attract new and recurring
visitors to its St. Helena estate.
With renovations, new private tastings and events added to the
calendar, Beringer wants to offer something for every level of wine
enthusiast.

Steeped in History
Beringer winery has been offering tours of its facilities and
grounds for 82 years; it was the first to offer public tours in Napa
Valley. Its walking tours offer visitors a peek into the contributions of
the Beringer family to winemaking and to the history of the area.
2016 will marked its 140th harvest.
The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places,
and many visitors come to the winery because of its historic
designation. Visitors can revel in many of the renovations aimed at
preserving the Rhine Houses character and attributes, such as
original stained-glass windows, authentic Ansel Adams photographs
and wood craftsmanship in the details of the old home.
In 1971, the Beringer family sold the winery. Treasury Wine Estates
22

took over Beringer in 2007 and maintains ownership of Beringer to


this day. The Beringer family may no longer own the winery but
maintains an active role in winemaking through Mark Beringer, the
great-great grandson of founder Jacob Beringer.

Continued Innovation
For those new to wine, visitors can meander through the estates
manicured gardens, demonstration vineyard and historic grounds
before stepping up to the bar inside the historic Rhine House for a
traditional flight of Beringer wines.
Those with a bent for history will enjoy learning about the original
home, built in 1883, while a knowledgeable staff member provides
details about the wine they are tasting.
Visitors who want a more in-depth look into Beringers history
can take the Legacy Cave Tour. It is a 30-minute guide through the

A New Winemaker David Nakaji


David Nakaji joined the team as the new winemaker for Sebastiani
in 2016. David started his career in Chemistry but soon realized that
wine was the route he wanted to take because of the mix of science
and craft. Being the scholar he was, he then went to get his final
Masters degree in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis, which
brought him to Northern California. Upon graduation, David worked
several harvests throughout the world: Cakebread Cellars in Napa,
Domaine Louis Latour in Burgundy, and Chateau Tahbilk in

Theres
Something

HUGE

in Downtown Calistoga

Huge Bear Wines


In Vino Ursus Veritas!
For a winery steeped in Northern California history
and the Bear Republic independence movement,
Calistoga makes perfect sense as the location for the Huge
Bear Wines recently opened tasting room. Even in 2016,
the petite city on the border of two valleys still happily
balances small-town life and frontier adventure. There
may no longer be gold in them there hills, but there
certainly is plenty of vinous gold and concomitant high
scores from whats growing there now. Founded in 2006,
Huge Bear finally found a home in the historic Calistoga
National Bank building on Valentines Day last year,
creating a perfect match for the handcrafted wines made
with a focus on small-production bottlings.

The Unbridled, Unstoppable Bear

Open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Founded by the owners of Knights Bridge Winery, the Huge Bear namesake comes
from an early twentieth-century newspaper article chronicling a local bear who
repeatedly surprised an early 1900s Knights Valley Justice of the Peace, in whose
home amongst others he could often be found, raiding for food. The bear was never
actually caught, giving motivation to organizers of the Bear Flag Revolt and therefore
was acknowledged on the Bear Flag of the short-lived independent Republic of
California. Today, the winery channels this story of unbridled, unstoppable selfdirection into its releases, and gives back to the community. Currently, with each
bottle sold in the tasting room, Huge Bear will donate back $1 to support local and
national non-profits. After each tasting room purchase, customers can choose to
donate this $1 per bottle to either the Calistoga Boys & Girls Club, The Napa Vine
Trail or The Bear League.

Wine Country This Week >> WINE COUNTRY NEWS

Adorned by a very whimsical, intricate label adapted from


Lynd Wards classic Caldecott Medal-winning book The Biggest
Bear, Huge Bear Wines most certainly reward second or even
third looks and tastes. The winery currently produces a halfdozen small-lot bottlings of Napa and Sonoma County fruit
including current releases of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet
Franc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Ros and Sauvignon Blanc and
the red blend, Ursa Gigantes, which deftly showcases its
Knights Valley origins.
Given how recently the winery was founded and the
vineyard oversight taken over a decade at this point its
really quite impressive to already be seeing 90+ scores from
Connoisseurs Guide and Wine Enthusiast and lots of print
space dedicated to the wines in the Contra Costa Times,
Decanter, New York Magazine and The Tasting Panel. Visits to
the tasting room also allow access to older library bottlings of
many of these releases, too another reason to come on up to
Calistoga. New wineries are often afraid to showcase their
history; clearly, that is not the case in many ways with Huge
Bear. They dont hide from their history but revel in it!

The tasting room itself reflects this theme in its touches of
old and new, repurposing and re-using materials where
possible while also updating the interior where needed,
providing great light and access to try the wines and spend
some time with fun folks who put the emphasis on whats in
the bottles and their enjoyment, not flashy marketing spin.

more: more chefs, more pigs, more intense
flavorsand more dishes for guests to
sample at the finale, Grand Cochon.
Representatives from all cities will include
not just chefs, but sommeliers, who will
partake in the pork-meets-wine-matching
Somm Smackdown, and barkeeps, whose
whole bottle magic has punched them a
finals ticket via the Punch Kings cocktail mixoff.
All events will celebrate the importance of
heritage breed farming through consumption

restaurant and bar owners, celebrity barkeeps
and chefs, sommeliers, farmers,
cheesemongers the very people who define
the good food movement.
Ensuring a future of safe, honest and
delicious food will be the dominant theme of
this years tour. In support of this,
Cochon555 will donate a portion of all
proceeds to its sister charity, Piggy Bank. This
nonprofit foundation is a genetic sanctuary
and Missouri farm established to provide free
genetics to emerging family farmers. Piggy

Heritage Fire

Rounding out the tour is one of


the most memorable food experiences
of the year, Heritage Fire. Held only in
Snowmass/Aspen and Napa, this
culinary happening features more
than 50 chefs from around the
country and the world, stoking live
hardwood fires and cooking every
type of protein imaginable. 75-pound
HON555 sturgeons, rabbits, ducks, goats, 48day, dry-aged steaks, poussin
heritage breed animals will be roasted
in mountainside and vineyard settings
in a savory tribute to local food
communities and age-old cooking
methods.
We at Cochon555 hope to make
this tour about two things: our future
and our legacy, emphasizes founder
Brady Lowe. By bringing Heritage
BBQ into our national competition,
we also hope to expand the impact we
can have on the food systems to
include one of this countrys and
our worlds - most beloved forms of
cooking. With sommeliers and
barkeeps as part of our Cochon555
family now, we also hope to show that
drink and food hold equal
importance in the formation of
culinary communities. Eating safely
and sourcing honestly can help us not
just in the years, but in the decades to
come. We believe the impact of this
will play a role both socially and
agriculturally.

charity before winners are announced,

recognition to substantial and meritorious


contribution in viticulture, enology,
education or journalism.
The decision to recognize Peter Mondavi
Sr. was made in late 2015, prior to his death
February 20, 2016, at age 101.
In addition to the influence his work has
had in Napa Valley and beyond, Peter
Mondavi Sr. and his family have been
supporters of this organization from nearly its
very beginning, said AWS Executive Director
John Hames. AWS members have a deep
affection the family and Charles Krug brand.
Accepting the award posthumously on
behalf of his father was Peter Mondavi Jr.
Dad would have been both thrilled and
humbled by the AWSs recognition of his
lifelong accomplishments through this Award
of Merit, Mr. Mondavi said. Over six
decades, Dad worked in a very quiet,
methodical and, above all else, passionate way
to achieve what he did.
A pioneer of now widely embraced
techniques such as cold fermentation of
whites and ross and aging wines in French
oak barrels, Peter Mondavi Sr. steered
C. Mondavi & Family and Charles Krug
Winery, which it obtained in 1943, through
half a century of change. More recently he
guided Krug through a replanting of 400
acres of vineyards, adoption of a sustainable
farming practices, and investment in state-ofthe-art winemaking.

tastings for an in-depth experience.


Bennett Lane Winery, located on Highway 128, just north of
Calistoga, is a family-owned winery that is home to the Maximus
feasting wines, blends intended to complement food. Situated against
the Palisades mountains, the winery is a great place to take in the
views of the region while relaxing with a bottle of its award-wining
wines.
August Briggs Winery, which was founded in 1995 by August
Joe Briggs and is now run by longtime employees Colette Milliman
and Matt Gasco, offers eclectic selections of classic and lesser-known
varietals. As winemaker, Joes nephew, Jesee Inman, continues his
uncles tradition of offering artisan, single vineyard and appellation
wines. Located conveniently in the heart of Calistoga at 1307 Lincoln
Avenue, tasting here can be a destination at the end or at the
beginning of your Winter in the Wineries passport journey.
Winter in the Wineries Passport program is a great way for
participants to experience both Napa Valley varietals and Calistoga
offerings, said Chris Canning, executive director of the Calistoga
Chamber of Commerce and Welcome Center, which sponsors the
passport series, now in its seventh year. We are excited to welcome
another year of the passport series. Its a great way for visitors to
leisurely explore and sip through the city over the two-month
period.
Passports are valued at $300, and are available online. Many
participating wineries request that visitors make reservations before
tasting, and a list including those wineries as well as participating
hotels, shops and restaurants is posted on the visitcalistoga.com
website. The website also features short video teasers to introduce
passport holders to the participating wineries.
The passport series is a fun and economic way to break-up the fast
pace of the holiday season or to just get away for a relaxing time in
wine country. Aside from the world-famous wines, Calistoga is
known for its natural geothermal waters, popular spas, upscale
dining and outdoor activities. Its enough for a full and memorable
adventure in the northern Napa Valley.

Sonoma Springs Brewing Company Releases First Bottles for Retail


Popular selling Kolsch and IPA go into 22oz bottles with plans for expansion
Sonoma Springs Brewing Company has
released its award-winning Sonoma Springs
Kolsch and Subliminal Gold IPA in 22oz
Bombers. The Kolsch is the brewery's most
popular beer, and also serves as the base for
some of their barrel aged and sour beers.
Subliminal Gold IPA is Sonoma Springs top
selling IPA. The brewery plans to expand its
limited-release bottle offerings to other beers
including its Lil Chief Strong Pale Ale,
NomaWeiss Hefeweizen, and Women are
Smarter Wildflower Saison in the future.
We pride ourselves in producing
innovative, delicious and small-production
craft beers, said Derek Drennan, Partner.
Weve been wanting to bottle these beers for
quite some time, allowing consumers to
come into the taproom and then take a few
bottles or case home with them, or find in a
store in the area to enjoy.
The Sonoma Springs Kolsch is light and
dry, with 5.2% ABV and 20 IBU. A true
porch pounder, this beer should be

consumed while grilling meat, floating on


the river or in the comfort of your home
with friends!
The Subliminal Gold is Sonoma Springs
flagship West Coast Style IPA combining
crisp and refreshing malt build with a mix of
amazing hops. At 7% ABV and 68 IBU, the
Subliminal Gold produces distinct flavors of
gooseberry, citrus and passion fruit.
I am thrilled with the bottle release of
these beers, allowing more consumers to
gain access to our craft, said Tim
Goeppinger, founder and brewmaster. The
Kolsch has always been a favorite in the tap
room, and is one of my favorites to sip on
year round. I am very proud of the
Subliminal Gold IPA; its silky smooth and is
a refreshing beer!
The 22oz bottles are available for
purchase in the taproom, and the brewery is
managing Bay Area and Sacramento
distribution to retail accounts. Currently, the
22oz. bottles are available at local bottle

shops and large speciality retailers across the


Bay Area. Sonoma Springs intends to expand
to LA and San Diego markets in the near
future.

J Bubble Room Renovated for an Enhanced Experience


Visit the New J Bubble Room
The Bubble Room at J Vineyards &
Winery reopened its doors this month
introducing a newly remodeled space in the
Visitor Center. Now adorned with elegant
dcor, including hand-blown glass
chandeliers, the larger, more open design of
the J Bubble Room features a chefs bar
showcasing the talents of Executive Chef Carl
Shelton and his team as they prepare the first
pairings for their guests.
The J Bubble Room brings together two
accomplished artists Winemaker Nicole
Hitchcock and Chef Carl Shelton to create
refined and distinct compositions on every
plate. With each course, food and wine are
married to compliment flavors, textures and
aromas meant to provide an unparalleled
wine country experience. The J Bubble Room
is an entirely unique gastronomical journey
led in tandem by both Chef and Winemaker.

The staff takes great care to make each guests


visit a perfectly orchestrated and thoughtprovoking experience.
At J, we are one of the only wineries in
California to devote equal energy to both our
sparkling and varietal wines, said J
Winemaker Nicole Hitchcock. The breadth
of our portfolio lends itself to a wide array of
cuisines, which allows Chef Carl to create
stimulating flavor combinations.
The J Bubble Room menu tells a new and

trade, but its also my passion. Im always


thinking about ingredients. When I discover
something special whether at a local farm
or even a subtle nuance in Nicoles wine I
want to share it with anyone who comes to
see us at the J Bubble Room.
The current menu entitled Let the
Bubbles Flow, was introduced on December
1. The renovated J Bubble Room hosts up to
54 guests per seating and up to 10 guests in
the private dining room.
The Bubble Room at J Vineyards &
Winery is open Thursday through Sunday
with seatings at 11:00 a.m., 12:00, 2:00 and
3:00 p.m. In addition to the Bubble Room, J
also offers tastings daily at the Signature Bar,
Legacy Lounge and Terrace outdoors when
the weather permits. Call (707) 431-5430, or
look on Open Table to make a reservation.

compelling edible story every six weeks. Each


menu is a reflection of the time of year, the
fresh produce which is available, and other
inspirations provided to Chef by Sonoma
County.
With each menu, we try to create an
unforgettable experience that inspires guests
to explore new boundaries to the possibilities
of pairing wine with food, J Executive Chef
Carl Shelton said. Im lucky. Im a chef by

regionally distinctive Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay. Additional information on the winery is available at

Preservation Award Winners Partner to Offer Exclusive Access


to their One-of-a-Kind Historic Properties & Wine Tastings
Following the 2016 Preservation Awards
presented by The Sonoma League for
Historic Preservation to Buena Vista Winery,
Pangloss Cellars and Three Sticks Winery for
their commitment to preservation of
significant historic structures in Sonoma, the
wineries have come together to offer the first
annual Preservation Icons of Sonoma Tour
and Wine Tasting benefiting the Sonoma
League for Historic Preservation.
The tour offers a unique opportunity for
historic preservation and wine enthusiasts to
experience each property accompanied by
in-depth discussions on the historical
importance of each building, the extensive
preservation efforts exercised to restore them,
and premium wine tastings at each
destination. The day will consist of uniquely
curated experiences in which participants get
a behind the scenes perspective on the
restoration and evolution of these iconic
properties of Sonoma.
The Preservation Icons of Sonoma Tour
and Wine Tasting will take place Saturday,
January 28, 2017 and will include three tour
itineraries in which groups of 28 will start the
day at 10:00 a.m. at one of the three historic
properties. Each group will enjoy a 90-minute,
one-of-a-kind tour with tasting focused on
architectural restoration and preservation
and then will transition to the next wine
property until every group has completed the
full program. The groups will join together
for lunch at the Sonoma Depot Hotel and
again at the end of the tour for coffee and
sweets at the Sonoma Leagues Maysonnave
House at 5:15 p.m. for an opportunity to
discuss and revel in the day. Lunch is a three
course meal designed by Gia Ghilarducci and
her son Chef Antonio Ghilarducci of the
Depot Hotel Restaurant. Enhanced by the
setting in their beautifully restored plumstone building off of Sonomas historic
square, this will add to a full day of
celebrating Sonomas unique history of
winemaking, cuisine and architecture.
Jean-Charles Boisset, Proprietor of Buena
Vista Winery says of the tour, Buena Vistas
58

future is its past. Our mission is to preserve


and perpetuate the imaginative vision and
unrivaled legacy of the winerys founder,
Count Agoston Haraszthy, and to protect the
first grand estate of the California wine world
for everyone to discover. Were thrilled to
offer our guests a unique opportunity to get
an insiders look at our White House of wine
through the Preservation Icons of Sonoma
Tour.
We are grateful to be able to share the
restored home of Pangloss Cellars with the
community, says winemaker Erich Bradley.
Old buildings have a unique character that
simply cannot be replicated in new
construction, so we have designed the
Pangloss Cellars experience to honor and
embrace the unique history and physical
beauty of this soulful place. In Sonoma, we
believe we have found the best of all possible
worlds, and with our wines we aspire to
share the best of it with you.
We are so proud to be recognized by the
Sonoma League for Historic Preservation
and in the company of Pangloss Cellars and

Buena Vista Winery, two wineries which we


greatly respect, says Bill Price, Proprietor of
Three Sticks. The Vallejo-Casteada Adobe
is incredibly special and our hope is that
visitors and locals will be able to share in this
unique space for years to come.
Sonoma is the birthplace of the
California wine industry and a town that
takes its unique character, architecture and
ambiance very much to heart, said Acting
League President and Three Sticks COO,
Prema Behan. It was wonderful that the
League chose to recognize wineries that
significantly contributed to preserving
Sonomas rich architectural heritage and that
those wineries have opted to give back to the
League is very special.
Tickets for the Preservation Icons of
Sonoma Winery Tour are available on
Eventbrite for $225 per person and the lucky
first 84 guests will have the opportunity to
take part in this unique historical experience.

pairing, and wine tasting experiences for both the wine novice and
expert.
The Restaurant at Wente Vineyards uses locally grown organic
ingredients and features ingredient-driven California wine country
cuisine. While the menu holds its foundation in American dishes, it is
influenced by French and Italian provincial cuisine. The seasonal menu
changes daily, utilizing produce from The Restaurants organic garden.
Wente Vineyards is also the only winery in Livermore Valley to
offer a championship 18-hole public golf course.
Family, food, entertainment, and of course, the wines beckon
visitors to experience the legacy that is Wente Vineyards.

VASCO ROAD

Livermore Valley, with its rich heritage and variety of wine tasting
experiences, should be a top destination that people consider when
planning their next wine country getaway. As the countrys oldest,
continuously operated, family-owned winery and Californias First
Family of Chardonnay, Wente Vineyards would be a good place to
start the journey. The winery, led by fourth and fifth generation family
members, has clearly proven their leadership both in winegrowing
and in being one of Californias premier wine country destinations.
The Winemakers Studio is an option for consumers to learn more

Good to Know Before Heading to the Tasting Room


Do not be intimidated for any reason. That is rule number one
(and there are very few real rules after that). For the most part,
going wine tasting is about the easiest thing in the world, especially here in California where wineries and tasting rooms
abound. You can find wineries specializing in red wines of all
types, those that are famous for their white wines and others who
pour sparkling wine. It is a matter of doing a little research and
planning your day.
Here are some tips that have proven to be helpful and are designed to help make the sensory adventure of wine tasting more
enjoyable.
Before you start off pack a few essentials: Water (plenty of
water) and something to snack on crackers or a baguette. Many
wineries have picnic areas and there are plenty of delis and bakeries
that can make up a lunch for you, or make your own. Be sure to
nibble during the day and make sure you make time for lunch. Two
tips: drink at least twice as much water as you do wine, and remember that you dont have to drink everything poured into your
glass. There is a reason tasting bars have dump buckets and a
pitcher of water to wash out your glass.
Dont be afraid to ask questions.
You can drink what you want, in the order you want. If you
only like reds, say so; if you dont like sweet wines, speak up. But
the idea of starting with whites, then going on to reds and then
sweet wines is a good guide.If there is a particular wine you want
to try and it is not on the list, ask. There might be a bottle around
that was opened for a trade tasting or by the winemaker. Most tasting rooms are happy to pour a little if you show enthusiasm.

If you plan to take wine home with you, either in the car or on
a plane, buy a cardboard box with Styrofoam wine inserts. Fill it
during the day and this keeps wine from rolling around in the
trunk.
Check out the smaller wineries. It is a revelation.
Take notes on the wines you most enjoyed.
Take advantage of tours when the winery offers them, but keep
in mind that they take anywhere from 20 minutes to well over an
hour, so one a day is plenty.
Buy wines that you can only find at the winery. These often include smaller (375 ml) bottles of limited production ports or
dessert wines. Dont buy a wine you can get at a supermarket back
home.
Dont give too much thought to ratings and vintages. Its like
art: if you like it, its a good wine. It is as simple as that.
Remember that you dont have to do the driving. It takes no
more than a phone call to rent anything from a Town Car or restored Packard convertible to stretch limos and a 20-passenger bus.
All have drivers that will stow your wine for you and the local companies know the area. Tell the transportation company what you
have in mind and listen to their advice. They know the territory
and the people and personalities.
Know your limits. If you get close to it let others taste and you
can listen. It beats ending the day in a blur, and if need be calling
a taxi is cheaper than the alternative.
And if at a seated tasting, dont be afraid to leave a gratuity. Its
more than worth the five or ten dollars to get wisdom and wine
By Charles Neave
and a great time.

Do the Math
One of the questions most asked when it comes to wine is how much of this does it take to make that, and so on. We wont pretend that its simple, but here are some industry statistics that will give a pretty good
answer to that query. As with anything agricultural, of course, they are all based on countless variables when it comes to acre yields, but this is a good starting point. The rest of the information varies little if at all.

A single bottle contains:


750 ml of wine which is 25.6 ounces made
from about 2.4 pounds of grapes (39 oz.) and
is enough for four or maybe five glasses.

One standard oak barrel of wine holds:


295 bottles of wine (or 59 gallons)
made from 740 pounds of grapes
which works out to almost
but not precisely 24 cases of wine.

A case of wine includes:


a dozen 750 ml bottles
(or 24 half bottles)
or 307.2 ounces total, which
comes from 30 pounds of grapes.

An acre of vineyard land can give the grower:


five tons of grapes (though it is also less, depending on a variety of
farming and winemaking practices, and on the varietal and the vineyard
location) which will give you 797 gallons of juice (or thirteen-and-a-half
barrels) which is pretty close to four thousand bottles of wine.
